I create a dialog based project. And I want to resize a CListCtrl while the dialog resizing. If the CListCtrl has LVS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style, the height of each CListCtrl row will become very big when dialog resize. But if it doesn't have LVS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style, resize will be properly. I want to know why this will happen? LVS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style will have this phenomenon or maybe my code has problem?

My project my need LVS_OWNERDRAWFIXED CListCtrl style, because I want to draw things in cells.

This problem is because of CListCtrl style or drawcell problem?

The problem is possibly in WM_DRAWITEM message handler.
LVS_OWNERDRAWFIXED means that the list view control sends a WM_DRAWITEM message to paint each item; it does not send separate messages for each subitem.

Could you paste the code of your WM_DRAWITEM message handler?
